XFX GeForce GTX 260 XXX Edition (Page 1)

We look at our first GTX 260, and we've done it the right way. Bypassing the stock model, we go straight to the XXX.

When a new graphics card comes out, I tend to do the TweakTown review and then have a look around and see what some other reviewers thought of the card. However, I've been so busy lately with the new release of the HD 4800 series from AMD and the GTX 280 from NVIDIA that I haven't had a chance to check out any other GTX 200 series reviews.

What I have mostly seen, though, is that the majority of GTX 260 reviews floating around the internet are just the standard NVIDIA model, which is a bit boring. Today we'll be looking at the XFX offering, and not just some stock clocked XFX offering, but a full tilt XXX version which has some clocks to get excited about.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the GTX 260 fairs in this extremely competitive graphics card market, and hopefully its cheaper price tag can win us over. The graphics card market has never been this hot before, and while AMD are fighting the good fight to take the market share crown back, NVIDIA is battling them off with sticks at the moment.

Before we get into the GTX 260, let's see what XFX have managed to do with the package and the clock speeds on the card.
